|Ascent Type:||Successful Summit Attained|
| Elevation:||5203 ft / 1585 m|
Ascent Trip ReportI approached Round Top from Hwy 62, turning on FR 68 towards Woodruff Bridge. i turned on FR 64 and then on 6470 and drove up to a saddle where the "Lusby Cabin" is shown on the topo. I turned sharply left on FR 600 and only drove a short ways before the road was blocked by a big tree down across the road. I parked and hiked up the road. When the road reached the north side of Round Top, I left the road and bushwhacked up to the summit area. I found a nice 6 ft tall rounded boulder on the summit that is the obvious high point. There are some views from the summit and on the the road portion of the hike. The bushwhack up and down the slope was not fun.
